Time For Replanting!

Arugula Spinach Mix... Yum!
Our seedlings have finally gotten to the point when it’s time to replant them in new homes. We decided to do mostly container gardening since this hurricane season is threatening to be active. It’s easier to bring containers inside than it would be to uproot plants and put them in containers.

My hubby also thought of an ingenious way to recycle a container that we get almost weekly at the store! We go through a ton of salad greens, obviously. One of the greens we splurge on is a container of pre-cleaned spinach and arugula (although I’m really not fond of arugula). The container the mix comes in is fantastic for replanting seedlings!

Our pepper plants took forever to germinate, but it was well worth the wait. They are the best looking seedlings we have! I’m not sure our lettuce is going to make it. I may have to plant new seeds. We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately, and the sun hasn’t been seen in three days. The little seedlings have obvious signs of not getting enough sunlight.


Today (6/8/12), I planted a little herb garden in one of these awesome spinach/arugula containers. I planted dill, parsley, and basil. We have one container in the fridge that is almost empty, and once it is, I’ll plant a ton of oregano in it.
